With a healthy twist.
It’s not a secret: I love sweets and desserts. But if I decide to make something for myself, it has to tick two boxes – it needs to be easy to make, and it has to be healthier than things you can buy.
This milkshake is vegan, requires just 3 ingredients, and takes about a minute to make… oh, and the best thing is that it’s packed with some good stuff for your body and skin.
In fact, all you need is your dairy free ice-cream – I enjoy Booja Booja, which is made with cashews – some dairy free milk (my absolute favourite is Oat-ly!) and this Green Superfood Powder by HUM.
This last ingredient is key, which is what makes this recipe so healthy (not just the absence of dairy): this package contains 30 servings, and comes in a light brown powder form. I picked the ‘mint chocolate chip’ flavour, but also comes in ‘vanilla & berry’ – which I’m planning to try next.
When you open it up and smell it, you would ever be able to tell that it’s made from 39 different detox superfoods; I got some powder on my fingers and it tasted just like chocolate.
I was very happy when HUM reached out to me and decided to sponsor this blog post, because it felt like something I would totally want to try, and the fact that you can just add a scoop of this powder into any of your favourite drinks, or even just water, to make a tasty treat, made it clear that it was a product I wanted to have on hand.
So for this recipe I kept it simple, and mixed 1/2 cup of milk with 1/2 cup of ice-cream and a scoop of the superfood powder.
Of course – you guessed it – I blended the mixture for a few seconds on my NutriBullet, and then topped it off with some whipped cream, and dusted the powder on top. I wish I had some mint, but I still wanted to put a little leaf on top so pretend it is mint!!
And you are done! Simple, quick, and incredibly tasty.
I let Felix try some as he is a big fan of anything mint chocolate flavoured, and he loved it. I drank it after lunch because it helps with energy; these past few days have been madness, I don’t know how so much work has piled up, so I could really use this milkshake.
Have you ever tried this product?
